Looking for an easy low-carb breakfast meal that can be made in less than 15 minutes? Make these tasty scrambled eggs with kale, turmeric and cumin.

This recipe uses keto superfoods: eggs for protein and choline, leafy greens for potassium, heart-healthy extra virgin olive oil and anti-inflammatory turmeric. (Make sure you add a pinch of black pepper to fully benefit from the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric by making it more bioavailable!)

I used kale but you could use other leafy greens such as spinach, chard or collards which don't need to be cooked for as long as kale. I kept it low FODMAP by omitting onion and garlic but feel free to add some for extra flavour.

And if you ever get bored with eggs, maybe you just need to try new recipe and here are my favourite:

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
